V-Day Party

I'm a little late with this, but a couple of weeks ago I hosted a V-Day Party. The theme: An Aphrodisicial Affair. I prepared a three-course meal, complete with appetizers and cocktails. This was the menu:

Cocktail Hour - homemade empanadas (pics below), spinach dip, fresh grapes and strawberries, and Rose Sangria. I also had a pitcher of water with cucumber slices and mint to give it a refreshing flavor.

Salad - Spring greens with dried cranberries, walnuts, parmesan cheese, with a Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette. Served with French bread.

Dinner - Sauteed spinach, Roasted Rosemary Potatoes, Mozzarella-stuffed roasted chicken with rosemary, basil, and pinenuts, and Sausages in grape sauce.

Dessert - Toasted Almond Cheesecake and White Chocolate Bread Pudding with Amaretto Cream Sauce.

The recurring theme was that all the foods I served had one or more ingredients that are considered to be an aphrodisiac. Before dessert, we all talked and listened to music - I had loads of fun hosting this shindig. Unfortunately, I was so busy being the hostess with the mostess, I completely forgot to take pictures of everything! I did manage to remember before all of the leftovers were gone, so below are pics of the cheesecake, potatoes, bread pudding, and empanadas.

wow...can i place my reservation for the next event? everthang is looking too good! wow....
i like how you broke it down by sections...cocktail hour, etc.

Those strawberry empanadas are my favorite. I think it might be your signature, because it seems like everyone loves it! They are always such a big hit! yummmm, I can taste them now.
